Hello! I am an ESL teacher and writer with extensive experience living and working abroad. Apart from teaching the general subjects in ESL, I specialize in preparing students for the iBT TOEFL exam and in accent-reduction training. I earned my BA at the University of Florida in Spanish Language and Literature and my MA at Portland State University in Applied Linguistics/Teaching English As a Second Language. I have also taken courses at University of Pennsylvania. Since then, I have taught at various universities including University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, University of Florida in Gainesville, and Portland State University in Portland, OR.
If you are looking to improve your academic English skills, get a better score on the TOEFL Test, or reduce your accent, I have complete sets of digital materials which can be sent to you. Together, we can put together a personalized curriculum for you so you can learn quickly and effectively.
My current ESL tutoring activities focus on teaching individual students and small groups. I teach adults and children and am aware of differences in students' language backgrounds, levels, and expectations. Understanding my students helps me to provide personalized lessons with goals to master specific objectives. I have studied a number of foreign languages, including Chinese, Korean, Portuguese, and Spanish.
Best of luck on your journey toward greater proficiency in English. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
